Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Rajendra Prasad said, this is not a book but a document of well researched Scientific data and the information has to go into the public. I don't have the habit of reading books, but just wanted to glance through the book, but ended up reading the entire book. It highlights the need for being exposed to Sun light and the importance of vitamin 'D'. The reason for our elders being healthy till old age was this exposure to Sun light and the cause for today's youth becoming victims of diseases at a young age being minimal exposure to Sun light. He said, what nature is offering bountifully in the form of sunlight should be availed by all of us. Vitamin 'D' is a gift from the nature for mankind he said.
